Church Renovates For Larger Community

Posted: Updated:

The New Hope Church in Williston is being renovated and it all started last year. The progress has been drastic so far.

A lot has changed in two months since the New Hope Church starting it's renovation project.

"We're very pleased with the progress on the building these days." Michael Skor said. "It's exciting to see. Obviously, there's a bunch of changes. We've got it all enclosed in. It's all insulated. Windows and doors we'll be arriving here any day to get completely enclosed in. There even putting some of the final coats of paint inside."

The lead Pastor Michael Skor says they have ordered chairs for the concert area and they will be coming soon. Since the process started, there haven't been any setbacks.

"We're right on time," says Skor. "We've eaten all of our extra time up. That's kind of life in Williston these days. Our crews are doing a phenomenal job working hard many of them from out of state have come in and have been away from their families."

All the crews have been working to finish the areas for the new indoor playground and coffee shop. There is a significant difference between two months ago and now.

"I think the excitement is building because people are beginning to see what it looks like," says Skor. "What it's going to look like in the end. That big tower is hard to miss. It's very symbolic for us. The Bible talks about the name of God being a strong tower where we run for safety. We want the community to know that we're building this again for them."

The excitement is already growing within the staff of New Hope, but the next step after the completion is to get it out to the public.

"We'll get the word out definitely. The nice thing is it's hard to miss. Everybody in town knows about, but there will be multiple ways we'll get the word out. And there will be multiple events for people to come and explore and see it for themselves," says Skor.

Skor says the goal for finishing the first phase is in May and they have already booked the African Children's Choir and the Booth Brothers for a celebration to honor that moment.

The church plans to invited the community to an opening celebration when it is finished.
